Ward campaign: ‘Idaho Republicans are ready for new leadership’

Asked for response to Bill Sali's put-down today - when Sali said, "Sending Vaughn Ward to Washington, D.C. is a little bit like sending a boy scout to Iraq. He doesn’t have any experience casting tough votes" - Ward's campaign had no comment. "Idaho Republicans are ready for new leadership, the kind of fiscally conservative, common-sense approach that Vaughn Ward will bring to Congress," said Ward campaign spokesman Ryan O’Barto. You can read my full story here at spokesman.com on former Congressman Sali's reappearance in Idaho politics today, testifying against child immunizations at a state House committee he once chaired and hinting he might run for office again himself, then, instead, endorsing Republican Raul Labrador in the GOP primary race for the 1st District congressional seat he once held; Ward also is seeking that seat.
